You can, but it involves making all posts by that user an "ex-member" post.

Your best bet is to make a new admin account (just upload the admin.* files in the Members/ directory), which would be protected from deletion. Change the password on that, but continue to use your old admin account.

Thanks, will do that in the morning.

Edit: What's 5 minutes? Uploaded admin files and altered it so there is only one admin who is now protected in the view / delete memberlist.

thanks for the quick reply

It's a bug in Beta 3. I fixed it here, but I'm in the middle of a long development cycle, so I can't release a new version.

Also make sure to do all the recount tools in YaBB.

Is it possible this is a result of some sort of server-imposed limit?  Either you're running out of space on the server, or there is some sort of time-out or bandwidth limit?

I'd be curious to see how large the "converted" directory is when the converter stops working.
  

You should always perform a complete back-up before making any changes or modifications to your forums.

is there a way to do this?

I'm not very familiar with Perl or the likes... and I'm mostly a windows guy.


But i know for PHPBB, you can download a backup of your DB... is it possible, to write a converter to just run on the persons computer itself? 

Like say I backup my DB to my harddrive.  once done is there anyway that I could run a Yabb2 Converter on the file and then Upload my results?

Like have a PERL Script that can read SQL?

OR Manually take what I need from that file and insert it into Yabb Files?

Hi,
I am having the same problem as Tarantulas first had.
But I have the the converter files and folders in the servers cgi-bin and CHMOD to 777.
I have tried putting converter.pl in with Yabb but no luck.
I have tried putting converter.pl in with cgi-bin but still no luck.
I still get a Internal Server Error.
I am using  smf 1.1 rc2
What am I doing wrong?  Sad

no - any db backup file is useless without the bare minimum (driver) to talk to it, and that generally means having a working copy of the database installed.

This isn't a problem, actually. I'm a windows user (XP) and have perl, php, mysql and sql server runnning alongside IIS5.1/xampp (alternately).
The major issue with mysql - the popular free database - is the version you use, and the compatibility of the scprits that the forum runs on it.
so, do the convert locally, with perl and mysql installed. then upload the resulting files to your server.

is mySQL still free?  and How do I know which version will I need to to make it compatible with Yabb2.1.   

Then (Sorry, noob), how will i use SQL and Perl to convert the data into a .pl format that my Yabb forums can read?

mysql is still free - they do an 'enterprise' version toI think.

As Yabb isn't mysql , you just need to pick the version that will work wioth the database of the source forum

Perl is the language that runs yabb, so just have that installed.
the converter does the hard work, so you just need to have the source database and  mysql availble.
